Lynn Ferguson

LA Take 2 – Day 5 – horns and acting…

This morning was SO much fun. I headed over to my old comedy chum, Lynn Ferguson’s place to record some This Day Today episodes. It was a long time since I have done any reading or comedy stuff but it was SO much fun. Lynn is a great director and between her and her husband, Mark, I think we have some great takes (and out-takes). I really recommend checking out their videos at http://blip.tv/ThisDayToday. They have some wonderful actors and comedians being very amusing. I will let you know when mine will be shown.

Th weirdest thing though was turning up after not seeing Lynn in over 10 years and finding we have exactly the same hair… I’m her mini-me 🙂

After a lovely lunch and catching up on so much it was time to head back to the studio.

Today is flugalhorn day. There is a wind quartet on Little Room and this was the first instrument to be recorded. Chris Tedesco did a wonderful job on his beautiful new flugalhorn.

Today we had no Joe and agreed that it wasn’t quite the same without his smiling face. It’s funny what aspects go into the overall experience of producing an album. I had today’s chocolate ready but I think I’ll wait until it’s all of us again. He’ll be back tomorrow.

We stared another song today and I had to re do the guitar parts. It was really nice to play and instrument for a while. A lot of being here is me listening while Bleu does a ton of work. I just pass comment from time to time.

Bleu had somewhere he needed to be tonight so I got the chance to get back to the hotel early and have a nice long conversation with my family. I really miss them. They are amazing.
